Hi. I see that you don't update your page too often. I know that writing posts is time consuming and boring.
But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from article directories or other websites
from your niche)? And it does it very well. The new articles are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
Search in google and try: miftolo's tools
